Is it just to impress the ladies?
Don't know what it has to do with turkeys, but a snood is a type of hair covering or net, worn by women in the 40's (and earlier) to hold the hair sort of up off the back of the neck, at the base of the skull, sort of like a hair sling. Or imagine a beard cover, but turned to the back of the head, and the long hair tucked in there.
It can cover the sinus openings but I think it's mostly for show. Watch them and the snood will tell you alot. The "rhino" drawn up and pointed is alarm or nervous, fully extended and red means "hey baby", semi extended is relaxed.
It hides the beak so perfectly, I thought maybe it was to hide any sign of aggression (from pecking) so as to draw the hen near without fear of being pecked. ??? just a thought...
